My Dad paid $1K over invoice on a ordered 3.0i back in February. I hear the deals on the X5 are much better on the Inline 6 than they are on the V8. I guess maybe it has to do with the V8s being allocated to the 7s & 5s before they reach Spartanburg, SC.
My Dad bought his X5 from Wide World of Cars in Spring Valley, NY (very close to the NJ border). The people at Prestige BMW (on Rte 17 SOuth) were offering a great deal as well, Wide World matched the price and it is closer to my Dad. Park Ave BMW didn't want to be bothered if I didn't take a vehicle from their lot. However, a customer of mine recently leased a new 530iA from them for his wife and was treated fairly and got a good deal YMMV. Good Luck!

My dealer is Patrick BMW in Schaumburg, IL. You gotta find a right salesperson though - my guy is plain awesome, while some salesmen out there are way too rude and uncooperative.

It all depends. Many dealers "pride" themselves on selling X5 4.8is MSRP(and not over it), yet I've seen cases of people buying it for $2-3k off. X5 4.4 should yield at least $3300 off sticker as well.

Thanks for replies on my X5 pricing question. Got three bids from local dealers, all over the net. Best price is $1,250 over what Edmunds shows as their invoice, $3,915 off of BMW MSRP.
For my package the MSRP is $59,880. Of that accessories are $7,780. Should there be more to squeeze because of the high amount of accessories MSRP, or is $1,250 over their invoice as good as I can expect before getting in the showroom?

is definitely a good start. go back and forth a couple of times. Let them know that you are a serious buyer and will come in to sign the papers if the price is right. Definitely let 'em sweat for a few days and see if they contatc you again.

Can you please email me the Salesperson's name? (Email in profile).
I would rather go to him than anyone else.
How do you like the X5 so far?
